Basketball Locker Room Renovation

Be a part of Yellow Jacket Basketball History!

The Project:

Nearly a year ago, BW embarked on a project to renovate the men’s and women’s locker rooms, film room and players’ lounge.  The locker rooms had not been renovated since 1986.  With the addition of Packard Athletic Center, space previously used by football, became available for use by the basketball teams.  BW strives to provide quality facilities for our student athletes, which can affect their pride, energy and performance.

The total cost of the project is about $125,000 with a fundraising goal of $75,000. To date, nearly $40,000 has been donated by alumni and friends toward the project.  Thanks to the generosity of our alumni, the locker rooms are complete and were in use last season.

The film room and players’ lounge remain on hold until the balance of the funds can be raised.  Desk space, computers, and new furniture will be added to the players’ lounge for student use.  The film room will be reconfigured with seating and desk space for players to view and study game films and meet with coaching staff.


The players' lounge and film room await renovation.  

How to Participate:

With just over $35,000 to raise, your gift will enable BW to complete the project in time for this year’s season.  In addition, your gift will provide a tangible way to acknowledge your place in BW Yellow Jacket history.   Please consider a "naming gift" for a room, space or locker within the facility which can carry your name or the name of a family member, teammate, coach or other person you would like to honor.  Gifts of all sizes are important and meaningful.  For more information about naming a room or walkout tunnel, contact Debbie Miller or Eric Stephens.
